The Times They Are A Changin

The times they are a changin.  It always takes my body a few days to adjust to time changes. I know the whole time-change topic has been cussed and discussed so much that I won't debate it here, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.
Time change wasn't a factor with my grandparents and great grandparents. In fact, I doubt that my great grandfather owned a watch.
It's hard to imagine functioning these days without a timepiece. Even though I'm retired, many of my days are carved into slices of time so that I can make calls, schedule appointments, and meet commitments.
This morning I forced myself to stay in bed until the clock said it was time to get up, even though I knew my body would be calling me a slacker.
Then tonight, even though I should be up for another hour and a half, my eyelids have grown heavy.
In a few days, I'll reprogram my body and things will drift back to normal, but tonight I just feel like whining about the time change.

I know my regular readers are probably growing weary of all the photographs from our trip this week, but most of the people who visit Jackson Hole have a photo taken where I was standing.


  1. Interesting take on the time change...I forgot it wasn't always like this!

  2. A few years ago, I started changing my clocks early in the evening on Saturday. I can fool my brain into thinking that nothing is different. I just live according to the time on the clock. My brain is pretty easily fooled.


  3. I like the picture and the time change sucks!

  4. Just caught up on your comings and goings! So glad you had a wonderful trip, you and Jilda do have some fun! Enjoy your respite and I look forward to hearing all about your next gig!

  5. That's a stunning pic of you!! Snow already!??! Yay! Merry Christmas! Change is good!! Just go with the flow and relaaaaaaaax!! LOL! Take care

  6. OMG Rick - SNOW?????????
    " as the present now - will later be past
    the order is rapidly fading " lol
    It takes me time to adjust too :)

  7. Rick these snowy pics are putting me in the Christmas spirit - which you know me well enough to know that I am already Christmas-crazy :)

  8. I like the pictures you take Rick :)

  9. My body started adjusting to the time change all on it's own during the past week. : ) We are now back to the normal time and I wish it would stay like this.
    I like your picture!!

  10. I recognized the Jackson Hole photo on first flip through. Yes, I have old photos of all the skiing days there. I no longer zip down the mountain but I use the walking poles in the winter for my daily walk. Helps keep my fanny off the ice. LOL
    After one is retired, it doesn't seem to matter if you set your clocks or not.
